Line-ups: Napoli-Juventus

Marcelo Estigarribia and Goran Pandev step into the starting line-ups for tonight’s rescheduled Napoli-Juventus.

The game was originally called off due to flooding in the city on November 6 and remains a top of the table showdown.

Both Coaches have to reshuffle, as Claudio Marchisio is suspended and Edinson Cavani failed a fitness test.

Initially ex-Napoli star Michele Pazienza was expected to play in the Juve midfield, but Paraguayan Marcelo Estigarribia pushed in front for his first Serie A start, moving Arturo Vidal back to partner Andrea Pirlo.

Mirko Vucinic, Simone Pepe and Alessandro Matri are also in the 4-2-4 line-up for Juventus at the Stadio San Paolo.

Fabio Quagliarella is on the bench against his hometown side and was greeted by insults from the crowd during the warm-up.

Napoli are without Cavani because the cut to his ankle suffered against Atalanta is too sore for him to even be on the bench.

Pandev has taken over in attack, so Ezequiel Lavezzi moves into more of a centre-forward role in the trident.

Gokhan Inler was also in doubt, but the Swiss international starts in midfield, while Juan Zuniga replaces Andrea Dossena.

 

Napoli: De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Aronica; Maggio, Inler, Gargano, Zuniga; Hamsik, Pandev; Lavezzi

Napoli bench: Rosati, Fernandez, Dossena, Dzemaili, Santana, Lucarelli, Mascara

Juventus: Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini; Pirlo, Vidal; Estigarribia, Pepe, Matri, Vucinic

Juventus bench: Storari, De Ceglie, Pazienza, Elia, Krasic, Quagliarella, Del Piero
